Contestant Information

Welcome, Contestants!

We are so excited to have you join us for the 79th annual Eagle County Fair & Rodeo this July. Please review the Contestant Letter for more information about your time with us. Detailed information about changes to parking for this year, as well as directions to our fairgrounds, can be found below.

Parking at the Eagle County Fair & Rodeo

In 2018, the Eagle County Fair & Rodeo has some exciting changes to contestant parking. As always, our Fairgrounds facility is equipped with ample capacity for large trailers. 

The new parking area will be located west of the Eagle River Center in a beautiful grassy field adjacent to the Eagle River. Parking will be manned by attendants who will ensure all vehicles have adequate surrounding space and are able to maneuver in and out of the grounds during the event, if needed. Contestants will have a private path staffed by security guards at junction points to lead their animals from the parking area to the performance arena.  

For those requiring special timing for arrival or departure, please view the Short-Term Contestant Parking section below.

Short-Term Contestant Parking 

The Eagle County Fair & Rodeo understands that some of our contestants only have a brief period to spend with us on their journey and wants to be sure to accommodate all contestant needs. If you are a contestant planning to park at the fairgrounds for less than a day,  contact the Fair & Rodeo via email at fairrodeo@eaglecounty.us at least 24 hours prior to arrival. Please include your intended date/time of arrival and departure as well as any other special requests. NO OVERNIGHT PARKING WILL BE PERMITTED IN SHORT-TERM CONTESTANT PARKING.

Short-term parking on the east side of the Fairgrounds is limited and will fill up. Contact fairrodeo@eaglecounty.us to secure your spot.
